But my thoughts dwell particularly on that evening just weeks ago when George sat telling of his plans for his new Movement for Economic Justice, carefully mapping out the areas where low and middle income Americans hold a clear common stake in economic change. He spoke at some length, I recall, on how everyone with an income of SI 5,000 or less could benefit if we replaced the standard income lax exemption with a refundable tax credit. And he explained with equal patience and clarity some of the principles of grassroots organizing he had come to recognize over the years. He was a man totally absorbed in what he was doing.

His friends and colleague have lost the comradeship of a man who, with their help, achieved magnificent things in his 42 years. But we all have gained by the vision and the life of a man who anticipated the needs of poor people and acted on them before most of us. With the recent announcement of the decentralization of the Commerce Department 'f Office of Minority Business Enterprise (OMBE) in which scores of staff members will be transferred or dismissed, one wonders whether there are quiet efforts to dismantle the widely-publicized program. Veteran Washington observes, especially those familiar with OMBE operations, point to several decisions which raise serious questions about the future effectiveness of the program which was designed to give minority businessmen a piece of the economic pie. In recent weeks, Alex Arrnendaris the new OMBE director has: . Formulated plans to decentralize the OMBE staff of approximately 250 employees, with some 195 of the Washington-based staffers being t ransferred to One of the six regional or 11 satellites offices. Or, if they do not wish to be transferred, they may "involuntarily separate " from the government. The implications of such a move are that no black businessmen or leaders involved in minority business development were consulted by the OMBE Director before the decentralization plan was announced. In addition, there to some speculation that there are two orders in reference to the OMBE program. The "A" order authorizes the, abolition of OMBE, while the "B" order would set up an entirely new organization. Consequently, all OMBE staffers would be without a job unless and until appointed to the new organization. Civil Service retention rights would help protect employees against immediate termination; however, with minorities comprising about 70 per cent of the OMBE senior staff, the reorganization would result in mass demotions. Terminated , notification 1 contracts with blade . . I illf; .. JUL The impact of this act is that terminated contractors received no criteria from OMBE during their contract term, thus giving them, no opportunity to take any corrective action if, in net, they were not measuring up to OMBE standards. According to rithout firms. C0GGM PONTIACS CLOSE-OUT CLEARANCE !!! a source, termination was arbitrary and Arrnendaris has refused to meet personally with any of the aggrieved contractors. Instead, he hides behind a contract review committee, which he stacked. to do his bidding. By defunding a certain number of businesses, Arrnendaris, who came to the program from CREEP (also known as the Committee to Re-Elect the President), to freezing millions of dollars for a new political patronage system. However, you can't really blame the man. He learned well from what happened to his predecessor, John Jenkins, who was shafted by his political peers for not turning the OMBE program into a political pork barrel. Since most OMBE funds for this fiscal year were committed last year, the defunding process becomes a necessary evil if Arrnendaris is to develop a budget for new funding grants. Developed a new rationale and substantial list of organizations to be considered for defunding. , r..;J memorandum from G. T.

"As we have discussed before, the Fiscal Year 1974 budget primarily affords budget balancing possibilities and new funding possibilities are severely reduced. "However, there are a large number of projects which will come due for refunding consideration during FY 1974 which do not contribute substantially to the attainment of OMBE's primary objectives, at least as presently measured by the PMS (Performance Management System) indicators.

Unified in their determination lo arouse all peoples of this country, the following individuals and organizations joined together .(ttiti' this nationwide fast an effective witness to the extreme African crisis now threatening 10 million lives: Dick Gregory, the Rev.

This call signals an unprecedented a n united concern by activist Afro-Americans to assure immediate rescue of Africans from the holocaust peril of starvation that is now facing them. All Americans must stand by the people of the Sahel in this their enormous hour of need. Six of ten million West Africans now face starvation and death. Livestock and cattle in the Sahelian region are dying steadily and alarmingly. Rivers, lakes and streams are drying up fish lie dead; drinking water is scarce. The Sahara Desert is moving southward - strangling crops and pastures. Rains have been erratic for 3 to 5 years thus hurtling the Sahelian Zone into the worst drought to grip African since 1913. This united Black leadership called upon all Americans to fast from midnight August 8 to midnight August 9 as testimony to the fact that: "We are our brother's keeper!" They call upon all clergymen, all civic leaders, all politicians to urge their respective constituents to join this nationwide manifestation of solidarity with African men, women, and children. They call upon all Americans to give their August 9 food money for the relief of the West African people. Money may be sent to IFCO-RAINS, 475 Riverside Drive, N. Y., N.

"' II ' i ... .. nous iif it L ing, weitare is tonsidered Jointly in New H-W Proposal WASHINGTON - (NBNS) -A new proposal that would tie subsidized housing for the nation's poor to welfare reform measures, is being considered by the Nixon administration, according to sources in the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Government's subsidized housing programs have been inoperative since Jan. 8, when then HUD secretary George W. Romney ordered a freeze on applications until the Government's approach to the matter could be studied. Under the new proposal, certificates which could be used for housing supplements, food stamps, Medicaid and other needs would be available. New proposals for housing subsidies were promised to Congress by Sept. 17, and EU.D. study groups have now produced a series of major iaiternatives approaches. The major proposals to be presented to the I Ad ministration include the following: V - A form of housing supplement available to aU people on the basis of need in a program that could be tied In with a revival of the fanrHjr assistance plan to replace the present welfare system ofr. payments to the poor.

"Our organization is people-centered, not doctor-centered," said Dr. Louis C. Brown, an internist from Atlanta who was acting convention chairman. "Doctors came into being because there were patients. It was not the other way around," he said. A day and a half was devoted to hypertension, or high blood pressure, a major contributing factor in strokes, which are the leading cause of death among black Americans today. "Sickle cell anemia is a problem, but it's hypertension that's killing us," said Dr. Arthur Coleman, a physician-lawyer from San Francisco. In addition, the recruitment and retention of minority group students in medical schools had high priority on the convention's agenda. Of the 47,259 students presently enrolled in 114 American medical schools, 2,582 are black, according to figures from the American Association of Medical Colleges. Of the more than 305,000 doctors in the United States, fewer than 7,000 are black. The average age of these is over 50, and the large minority of them were educated at the predominantly black medical colleges, Meharry in Nashville, and Howard in Washington. The Association, created in the late 1800's when blacks were riot allowed to join the American Medical Association, PUSH Foundation, 930 East 50th Street, Chicago, Illinois, and AFRICARE, 2204 R Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. has taken early stands in behalf of blacks. For example, in 1951, when herior addiction was a serious health problem for blacks, but not for whites as it is today, the Association passed a resolution calling for compulsory life imprisonment for pushers.
